I am joining in with a new weekly meme that I have come across for those of us who love our gardens (or even someone else’s garden.) It is Six on Saturday and hosted by ‘The Propagator’. Basically a post about six things in a garden, yours or someone else’s. Plants, birds, fruit, veg, tools, plans, ideas. Preferably with photos and some words, but not too many (words that is). See here for the participant’s guide.
So I am kicking off with six colours seen in the George V Memorial Walk this week. A floral rainbow.
Indigo / Violet
After the ‘beast from the east’ decided to head west followed by a second snow fall and below zero temperatures I was worried that a lot of the tender and half-hardy plants which are a feature of this Cornish garden walk would have suffered badly. After all they are not used to actual snow in these parts. There is some damage, especially to the agapanthus, of which there are many, and there might well be other casualties. I shall go back in a couple of weeks time and compare with my photos from the same date last April.
Not my garden, but I wish it was!
